So What's It All About? Entering into His presence Now and Forever Not always but often it seems, SUFFERING becomes the pathway leading to the highest awareness of God's presence. I have, therefore, imagined characters who endure differing degrees of challenge, sadness, or suffering. But I pray my readers will patiently read on past the sorrow, anticipating the vicarious joy of entering into His presence with Nick, or Matt, or Timmy, or the young guilty sinner-and with all the others No matter the intensity of the struggle, each character discovers powerful victory in this life's journey or transitions into ultimate victory-into the King's eternal presence. Oh, to catch a glimpse of Him-for now and forever * The greatest gift I have ever received is the apprehension of just one profound truth-that life everlasting and joy unending is available at no cost to us, for King Jesus paid it all.
